The global PET resin market size was USD 28.1 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 52.2 billion by 2026. It is anticipated to register a CAGR of 6.1% between 2021 and 2026. PET is the only recyclable polyester and is used in different applications compared to the other thermosetting materials. This advantage of being reusable helps the manufacturers to have a cost advantage. Recycling PET increases the consumption of PET bottles and supports the demand for PET resin. In contrast, volatility in raw material prices, such as crude oil, affects the price of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid, influencing the price of PET resin. The increasing demand will burden the industry over the next few years.

The PBT resin market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.1%, in terms of value, between 2021 and 2026.
The global PBT resin market size was USD 3.1 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 5.3 billion by 2026. It is anticipated to register a CAGR of 5.1% between 2021 and 2026. The automotive manufacturers are using PBT materials in their car production to overcome the challenges, such as reducing fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, and lightweight regulations by the European Commission. PBT is lightweight compared to steel and aluminum used in automotive cars. Therefore, it drives the demand for PBT. On the other hand, reducing halogen content in flame-retardant PBT is a key challenge because substituting a non-brominated, non-chlorinated FR chemistry usually degrades its mechanical performance. Due to strict environmental regulations, brominated flame retardants are not acceptable in Korea and China.

The PET resin market in the transparent & non-transparent PET segment is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period.
The transparent & non-transparent PET segment leads the overall PET resin market. The rise in demand for PET containers, especially from the food & beverage sector and the increase in demand for frozen & processed food are some major factors driving the growth of the transparent & non-transparent PET segment of the PET resin market.

The PET resin market in the bottles segment is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period.
The bottles segment is expected to dominate the PET resin market. The demand from industries such as food and beverage, consumer goods, and others for packing materials is growing due to the increasing consumption of PET resin. The growing demand for lightweight and convenient packaging, increasing quality of ready-to-drink beverages & flavored water, development of innovative merchandise, rising income, increasing usage in attention merchandise, and demand from personal care and pharmaceutical business can enhance the growth of the PET bottle market.

The PBT resin market in the electrical & electronics segment is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period.
The PBT resin market’s growth is based on the growth of the electronics application, not the downsizing of micro-electronics. The key driver of the electrical & electronics industry is socio-economic development, including the rise in disposable income, particularly in the emerging markets. The above factors will drive the PBT resin market in the Asia Pacific during the next five years. The markets in China, India, and other rapidly emerging countries are expected to witness strong growth in this segment. In contrast, developed markets such as the US, Germany, Japan, and the UK are expected to grow at slow rates during the forecast period. The demand for PBT in electronic components and assembly is expected to continue to create new growth opportunities for the market. The increased use of PBT resin in the electrical & electronics segment continues to drive the PBT resin market

Asia Pacific PET & PBT resins market is estimated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Asia Pacific is the manufacturing base and various leading companies are based in the Asia Pacific. Increasingly stringent regulations on the production and use of PET in developed regions such as Europe are leading industry leaders in expanding their recycling facilities and using rPET in their products. The Asia Pacific region has a high number of players in industries such as automobile and electrical & electronics which are end users of PET & PBT resins. The Asia Pacific is the highest populated region and also has the highest number of emerging countries which account for the major market growth as emerging countries focus on industrialization.
